It is winter in Nova Scotia. My enthusiasm to get out and begin new work is low. What better a time then to head to the darkroom? Seems fitting, too, as I am the instructor for NSCAD University's School of Extended Studies Black & White Photo course this semester. Without a doubt, there will be a good deal of silvery tones and darkroom magic over the next few months.
I used to use a lot of Arista films, from Freestyle Photographic, as they turned out to be re-branded Kodak emulsions. On a roll of Arista Premium 100 (no longer available re-branded Kodak Plus-X) that I developed yesterday, I spotted a a couple lovely portraits, and whipped off a couple proofs.
